Residency Outcomes

Artists on Caselberg residencies are awarded time, space and freedom to concentrate on the development of their work through the provisions of a house, studio, and dependent on the type of residency, an artist fee and materials budget. In return the Trust requires residents to pursue a creative project that fosters dialogue and establishes new links between Caselberg and the wider Otago/Southland community.

The Trust and Committee provide residents with a supportive context, encouraging experimentation and engagement with local Dunedin based artists and arts organisations.  The Trust encourages artists and practitioners to apply who are working in different fields or with different approaches in their practice.

The House and Studio

Caselberg Trust offers residents a secluded one bedroom furnished cottage with pedestrian access to the waters of the Otago Harbour, overlooking Quarantine Island. Tucked away along the Otago Peninsula, the cottage and its bushy surrounds offers residents a quiet, unique space to work away from the city. On the bus route, there is one off street parking space available next to the studio.

The new Charles Brasch Studio is located just off the street on the way into the house and was opened in April 2017. The studio boasts a plywood interior, is insulated, double glazed, 10 steps from the cottage door, has a covered car port which offers a sheltered outdoor work space. The studio is light, peaceful, with the sound of tui and bell birds coming in from nearby. There is an etching press and a sink that can be used for ceramics. Frequent visitors include the neighbour’s friendly tabby cat.
